Get Out of Your Own Way to Succeed

September 5, 2016

Did you know that on one of my first university essays, the professor gave it a D and scribbled on the paper that I have a serious writing problem?

I got writing help immediately.

Since then, I have written more than 450 newspaper columns, about 300 single page articles, several hundred blog posts, two books and a handful of journal articles.

As an aside, I had a reality television show (Newlywed/Nearly Dead – 65 episodes) and I have had more than 400 other radio and television appearances as a guest expert. I have been quoted in scores of other newspaper and magazine articles.

Thank goodness that professor was so clear and unequivocal about my poor writing ability – my difficulty to convey my thought clearly and concisely. He lit a fire under my butt that helped me succeed.

It is not our challenges that stand in our way, but our unwillingness to address them when apparent.

Need help? Get help.
